Sales manager admits he’s grown rather fond of his facial fuzz.
During the month of November Charles Green’s sales manager Steve Brookes has been carefully growing a moustache as part of Movember, raising money for men’s health charities during the growing process.
Professional Jeweller has followed Brookes’ progress each week, and now, with November coming to an end, Brookes’ has shared his last thoughts – and photo – of his striking facial hair. What an achievement, and what an impressive end to what was a sprinkling of bristles just four weeks ago.
“It’s been a strange but thoroughly enjoyable experience. All puns aside I’ve actually grown quite attached to my moustache, I found myself constantly trying to twiddle the edges to curl them into points and began to enjoy my whiskers blowing in the cold November winds,” said Brookes.
“I’d like to thank everyone who has sponsored me to raise money for this great cause, and also extend a big thank you to Professional Jeweller for the coverage. Not only in helping raise more money but by raising awareness to a much larger audience than I could ever reach myself about these potentially life threatening conditions.”
Brookes pondered over whether he would take on the Movember challenge again next year. “I’m very tempted to tackle a different style but I may have a moustache as a permanent fixture next year, who knows!”
He is still welcoming donations via his Movember website, here. So far he has raise more than £360 for charity.
